Early Ozzie & Harriet
I was probably in the crib still sleeping 20 hrs a day when this very early episode first aired, and I don't remember it as a rerun, so this is a first run episode for me. Ricky was pretty funny in this one. The Nelsons were a perennial favorite in our house.
So sad to think they are all gone from the earth now.

I really enjoy any show from the 50's/60's, but Ozzie and Harriet are something special. This one has Christmas, grandparents, parents who sacrifice, brothers who do things together and of course 4 of the most recognizable tv stars from the days of our youth, and that all makes for a great show. Thorny is always just right and although Lyle Talbot does not appear in this one, he does play one of Ozzie's neighbor/pals and I am reading a book by his daughter called "The Entertainer". Follow the life of Talbot and you learn the history of the movies.
